It's sticking at a balmy zero degrees outside this week, so I have some photos saved up so that I don't have to traipse out and freeze my toesies off :) I wore this for Christmas Eve with my husband's family. I stayed cozy while we opened gifts, played a few games (catchphrase anyone?) and of course stuffed ourselves with too many treats. I also got to be acquainted with their new cat who was walking all over our bed at four in the morning, jumping on our pillows, and licking our hair, haha! Cats are something else I tell you, but I do love them even with their, erm...shall we say-quirks ;)
This is another of my grandmother's blouses. I have two that are this color and material, but the other has short sleeves and darting detail along the front. This one is actually in semi-rough shape although you can't tell it from the pictures. It has several small stains on it and some definite wear, but I love it just the same. The color is that vintage-y pastel that I love and it has the sweetest color and subtle puffed sleeves. I really need to pair it with more of my high waist-ed skirts, but I wanted to be super comfy for the car ride to my in-laws- so stretchy corduroys it was!
Gloves are a must from here on out, I'd say. I had these white ones pulled out and decided they matched my shoes, so why not :) Anything to keep the hands warm! The only thing I feel bad about is making the hubby take pictures of me in weather like this...he can't wear gloves to take photos so his hands get pretty freezing...Oh the things that man does for me!
And I wore my favorite sea foam green cardi to top it all off. I really do pair this thing with every item in my closet. Sea foam is the new black, haven't you heard? (Ok, it could be just me then... :) )
That is all for today, I've just been getting back into the work routine and such :) This weekend I am planning to post a 2012 outfit roundup so watch for that in the works! Until then,
God Bless and happy weekending!
Lamentations 3:22-24The unfailing love of the LORD never ends! By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself, "The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!
